So you are admitting Romney is a lying phony?
Romney seemed to channel Hugo when he help public office as governor.
Typical dem putting words in people's mouths. All they do is set traps and hope they can exploit something someone says and misconstrue it, rather than debate the true issues.

Surely you are better than that?

Did you see the house?
Versailles? Yes, but it wasn't finished, right? He's in foreclosure. You'd think with all that money he'd be able to get rid of that spare tire and buy his wife a brush!
He can't know how anyone will vote anyway, sounds like a blowhard idiot, not to mention how foolhardy he cavalierly mentions that what he did during the Bush election wasn't legal!!
Are his employees all in a boiler room telemarketing?

......Obama’s debate performance was not as weak as Andrew makes it out to be. I have a family member who heard it with her housemates on the radio (from a farm in New Mexico) and they thought it a draw. Not bad, seeing as Obama was forced to confront a completely different Romney than the one who had been running for the past 18 months, and had to decide on the fly how to deal with that new phenomenon.

Mitt moves to the center. Why? Because you can't win an election with just the FOXbot vote.
What are they, 2% of the voting public?
Obama doesn't seem like a quick thinker he needs time to contemplate maybe he needs a box of thinking grenades like peter from family guy and tell your country bump kins OBAMA LOST

So Obama should do whatever Bush did? Like borrow? Even MORE than Bush did? I'm looking for a change. What part of CHANGE didn't you understand when Obama was running? Did you think he was going to STOP overspending and STOP borrowing money like Bush did? THAT would have been a change. He missed the boat on that one.
Get over BUSH. Romney is running. Obama is a failure in oh so many ways.
Obama has been a very good conservative. As you point out.

Unless the standards have changed? Which would lend credence to ignoring any past problems that might still be hanging around. You know, like the Bush tax cuts adding to 'Obama's deficit'.

Mitt Romney: It makes sense to use a TelePrompter
"It does make some sense though" to use a teleprompter, Romney tells Hannity. "I do understand."
He adds: "It keeps you from saying something you don't mean, you get the message out precisely the way you want to get the message out." Romney says he has used a TelePrompter "maybe five times" in the campaign. Romney in recent months has tended to use a teleprompter for most major speeches.
"It's smart," Hannity agrees. "You're right. You don't want to make a mistake. I'll tell you, they're out to just eviscerate anybody who makes a mistake."

Keep repeating to yourself. A speech is different from a debate. A speech is different from a debate. You may want to do a little essay to yourself as to the possible reasons why that is true.

Who buys timeshares anyway? You'd have to be a fool to do so. Most people who got sucked in by it, tried to sell them, no one wants them, people just walk away. This industry is a dying breed rampant with fraud.

Romney lied during the debate when he said Obama spent 90 billion on green initiatives.
He lied when he said all companies that received help failed.
Name the deductions Romney will eliminate & loopholes he will end to balance out his 5 trillion tax cut.
The truth is that he does not know. I doubt he even made a list.
Romney doesn't give any details because he has no details.
NONE
He is plan is to sit down with Republicans & Democrats in Congress & come up with ideas. He has none.
STELLAR business EXPERIENCE...because Big Bird(brain) phat crrayon mentality is the new high in LOWS.

FISCAL responsibility with priorities!
A change that is much needed!

Not all Black People vote for one party, simply because there are bigots in both party so the democrats cannot be the party of Blacks, some blacks seem to forget the nasty history the democrats have with Black People in America

Yeah, I know you like the quick talkers, who don't think about what they say. Usually those quick talkers are the ones you can't trust...they are salesmen trying to sell you something you don't really need or want.

Voters strongly favor government funding for PBS, poll finds
Although defunding PBS has been a conservative legislative priority since at least the mid-‘90s, the poll’s results suggest that public television enjoys more bipartisan support than, well, just about anything does these days.

Sorry FOXbots. Your delusion that you speak for the majority once again falls flat on it's face.
WoW! And they did a whole BIG sample of 800 people! I'm SO convinced. AND would also depend on where the sample was pulled. That's hardly representative either.
